From my desk: April 8, 2020

I’m sitting here, in my usual “blogging chair” and I’m reading various posts. Each day I try to read as many posts as I can before falling asleep (no one should take that personal!). Today is different.

Many of my followers know that last July I lost my son. I in no way want to minimize the relationship I have with my daughter, but I dread how I will feel waking up this weekend without my son. Last year, since I had lost my husband the year before, my son had bought me all of my summer flowers and vegetables for planting. Both my son and daughter showered me with love, gifts, and dinner. How does a parent who has lost a child still find happiness on Mother’s Day when you still have another child still here?

This weekend is supposed to get super chilly, they have said we might even get an inch of snow! What? New England isn’t that far north that we should be getting snow in May. This morning was sunny but now the clouds have come back to make it a gloomy, chilly Friday afternoon. I did make brownies, though!

I have been working on a new miniature. It is another flat/apartment. These are the pictures of the kit, right out of the box.

I won’t do many challenges this afternoon as I am not feeling up to thinking hard enough. Lol! I will continue my miniature, eat my brownies, and thank God that I have a beautiful daughter who makes me so proud and happy!

Happy Pre-Mother’s Day!
Stay safe and healthy.
Keep your mask on!

Things I am thankful for:
My daughter, David, my dad, Laurette, my friends, my house, my life, and everything that I have that I sometimes take for granted! Peace to you all!

  1. I’m so sorry about your loss. That’s got to make every day – and especially Mother’s Day – hard. I’m glad you have a daughter to help you through this. May you find God’s peace.

    1. Thank you Margie. It has been so difficult I can’t even describe it. I have found peace in my blogging. I do talk about my losses but I have found so many creative people to converse with! I love doing all the writing challenges. Keeps my creativity going. Thanks for stopping by. Come again! I’m always open.

  3. I am so sorry for your losses. It can be so hard.
    But you have your followers to support you. They care about you. If they didn’t care about you, then they wouldn’t have followed you.
    We all care about you very much and are wishing for your happiness. 😉 🙂
